Sh*tholes

Post by k.d. » Sat Jan 13, 2018 7:50 pm

Port-au-Prince, Haiti, is one of the largest cities in the world without a central sewage system. There are no sewers connecting sinks, showers and toilets to hulking wastewater treatment plants. Most of the more than 3 million people in the metro area use outhouses, and much of that waste ends up in canals, ditches and other unsanitary dumping grounds where it can contaminate drinking water and spread disease.

According to a bit of quick research and investigation by John Derbyshire, whatever Trump called those nations he was correct.

What's a Sh*thole ? I thought Trump said "Shithole" It's a little ironic that many TrumpTV and the Trump.coms who like it when Trump uses words like "Shithole" can't bring themselves to say are write the actual word.

Unlike CNN which used the word over 36 times in reporting the Fake News.

This is true. CNN did relish in the opportunity to curse over the air.

With the exception of maybe Nigeria and South Africa, Trump's description was not incorrect. However you can't have an emerging economy without first being a third world country. The description did fire up the base, which is Trump's first concern. But it was kinda dumb to say since many of these shitholes have despot leaders who are just as insecure as Trump (settle down, I'm not saying Trump is a despot, but I think we can agree that he is insecure). China and others will gladly jump in to serve these potential emerging markets that Trump pissed off.

These places are not 'potential emerging markets' unless maybe you are in the market for some stick & stone spears.
